Sessions asked ''if a judge is allowed to let his or her feelings for one party in the case sway his decision, hasn't that judge then demonstrated a bias against the other party?'
''Although we sometimes take our heritage of neutral and independent judiciary for granted, the truth is, this great tradition is under attack,'' he said.
Sessions said Americans should follow the confirmation process closely and ask what kind of judge they would want in court.
''Do I want a judge that allows his or her social, political or religious views to impact the outcome, or do I want a judge that objectively applies the law to the facts?'' he said. ''That is the central question around which this entire nomination process will revolve.''
A SOTOMAYOR DEFEAT WOULD BE VICTORY FOR THE RULE OF LAW AND FOR AN IMPARTIAL JUDICIARY.
